    "Under the Radar" Gun Control via executive order?

    What are your thoughts on this? If he gets another term will he do it? Of before his term is up? Rumors? Tin Foil?

    Obama: We’re working on gun control “under the radar” « Hot Air

    Jack Minor caught this anecdote buried below the jump on a Washington Post Lifestyle profile of Steve Croley, first published six weeks ago. Described as “the White House’s point man on gun regulation policy,” the Post includes this rather telling quote from President Obama on the issue of gun control from March:

    On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill to push for a ban on the controversial “large magazines.” Brady, for whom the law requiring background checks on handgun purchasers is named, then met with White House press secretary Jay Carney. During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.

    “I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

    Minor noted that this under-the-radar anecdote matches up with other reporting:

    The statement reinforces an article in the Huffington Post describing how the administration is exploring ways to bypass Congress and enact gun control through executive action.

    The Department of Justice reportedly is holding meetings discussing the White House’s options for enacting regulations on its own or through adjoining agencies and departments. “Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “

    That also matches up with Obama’s approach on … nearly everything, it seems. Regulatory adventurism has been a hallmark of every other Obama priority, whether it be health care, financial-services reform, labor policy, and now on gun control. When his agenda is too radical for Congress, Obama simply plans to bypass Congress and rule by decree.

    socialism is to communism what registration is to confiscation

    The Patriot Act extension allows ATF to grab gun dealer's purchase forms on any whim. That's essentially registration. Rand Paul is trying to add an exclusion to prevent it, but Reid is trying to find a way around him and pass it anyway. Letters and faxes take weeks before the staff tabulates them. You have to call your senators offices and talk to the staff personally to have any effect, if there is any effect to be had.

    That is a bit in error. The ATF has always been able to access any dealers paperwork with a simple audit...and that was long before the Patriot Act was even thought of.
    Yes...the 4473 Form is essentially "registration" and I have talked about it on this forum many times.

    The naysayers and liberalnazis insist it is for the "good of society" and many of them are stupid enough to actually believe it. The others...well, they rub their hands in anticipation of the day that they get to take em all up and see who has what. The background check, the so called NICS check that every dealer does is whisked away to a database somewhere. While at the moment it doesn't know what exactly one buys, it wouldn't be hard to add that question in there in the future.

    As for the socialists that run government now, NO I do not trust them to do anything that is actually beneficial to this country. Their only goal is the destruction of America as we know it and the proof it out there for any that will see.

    A storm is on the horizon and it isn't as far off as we would like to think.

    The grapevine has it that sources "high up" have stated (off the record) that the Obomb is the most anti-gun person that they have ever encountered. Not just the most anti-gun President but, THE most anti-gun individual. That's pretty doggone ANTI.

    All one has to do is look at the statements that he has made in the past to prove his stance on gun ownership. As for the idiots that he has appointed, they arent much better.

    A frustration I have is the constant reference to the obamanation as a socialist. Those that think Obama is a socialist need to look it up in the dictionary. Than look up fascist. Socialist's do not take trillions of dollars of the peoples money and give it to corporations. We are in the midst of a corporate take over. For thirteen years Madison Avenue, Wall Street invested tens of billions of dollars into Obama PR and media coverage. A decade before he ever even announced his intent to run. Why is that?
    On election night Ralph Nader (whom I do not like) made the most astute observation of his entire career. he said "But his choice, basically, is whether he’s going to be Uncle Sam for the people of this country, or Uncle Tom for the giant corporations who are running America into the ground." After trillions of dollars in bail out money I think I have an answer to that question. Point of course being that we need to start getting a real understanding of who the enemy is. It is not a pack of disjointed idealists but rather an organized group of people who was able to walk away unscathed after openly ripping off an entire nation and creating a world wide economic crisis. Today those same people are political advisers. In the mob they would be called Bosses in prisons they are called Shot Callers and Oboma is a tool by more than one definition
    Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
